KASOAG LAKE UPDATES
Letter From The President
We have a lot going on in July beginning with our July meeting which is this Saturday, July 14th at Kasoag Lake Bar and Restaurant at 10:00 am. Immediately following the meeting is our Association Picnic, silent auction and name the Island Auction. Bring a dish to pass.
A reminder to bring new items, like new items or gift baskets to the meeting for the silent auction. Name the Island Auction is a new event that should prove to be fun. There are 4 islands to bid on. If you are one of the winners, you will have the Naming rights to that island. The name you choose for the island will be put on a plaque and placed on the island. The names of the Islands will have to be approved by the Officers and Board Members.
July 21st is our Annual Boat Parade which begins at 6 PM at Tad & Terry Krawiec’s Dock. Bring a snack to pass and your own beverages. Decorate your boat and at dusk, we boat around the lake.
If you have not paid your dues yet, please send your check for $75 made out to KLCA, P.O. Box 346, Altmar, NY 13302-0346. If you have been out on the lake lately I’m sure you’ve see the improvement in the weeds after our treatment on June 27th. With your dues, we will be able to continue to maintain our lake for boating and swimming pleasure for you, your family and friends.
The permit for dredging Shingle Mill Creek is at the DEC waiting to be reviewed. I hope to have more information on this by Saturday’s meeting.
Looking forward to seeing you this Saturday.

One of our longtime KLCA and past board member, Karen Nellis has been diagnosed with cancer. Karen is fighting the cancer with chemo treatments. They have requested no visitors at this time as her immune system is very low, however, if you would like to send her a card, her address is 196 Kasoag Lake Rd., Altmar, NY 13302.
A very dear friend of Karen and a KLCA Member, Brenda Sweetapple and Jason, Karen & Verne’s son, had their heads shaved by Lauren Googin last Sunday to show support for Karen and have done it as a Fundraiser. Karen requested all donations be made to KLCA to help with the maintenance of Kasoag Lake. Please mail a check made out to KLCA, P. O. Box 346, Altmar, NY 13302-0346.
